Salutations! I am Mildred, the Old Op’s resident Apothecary, here to help you find cures for what ails you.

Having started my career as an anatomical teaching skeleton, I have been with the museum, well, since it became a museum!

I have helped a wide variety of visitors, students, patients, medics, and even our Garret Ghosts, throughout the years.

So I think you’ll agree, there is no body better equipped with the knowledge and expertise to provide you with time-tested cures for the modern world.
